The Griffin Middle School Drone club was established in the 2016-2017 school year. Funded by the gracious donation of the Griffin Middle School PTSA, 6 students competed in the G3 Drones for Good Competition.
The G3 Drones For Good is an exciting STEM competition involving drones for middle school students. The GMS Drone Club worked their teacher to develop an innovative drone-based solution to a problem in their community, state, or the world. They built a Drone that competed in three flying challenges. The GMS Drones Club students. developed research, problem-solving, and communication skills while designing, building, and flying their own drones.
While we did not place at the competition, we were the only Team to take out an entire table of water bottles and materials. We experienced a multitude of red flags. It was a very proud moment for our GMS Drone Team.
The GMS Drone Team’s goal is to place 1st, 2nd or 3rd during the 2017-2018 Competition.
